Great piece, Kevin. And even though it's more work for you, I really like the mix of printed news and the narrated slide show. Keep it up!
A couple of comments. First, although I know we'd like to think that Disney is reading us on these boards and responding to our wish for fixes, you can almost bet money that the fixes were totally in response to Iger and other executives coming to the park. I've been in many corporate situations where the word goes out to get everything in perfect shape cuz Mr. Big-wig is coming tomorrow. This seems like exactly the same thing.
And about the ladder: never good to see on stage. About a year ago I was horrified on a ride on Spaceship Earth. In the scene with the gigantic printing press and big ol' engine, there on the ground to the left by the first machine was a Home Depot 8 foot ladder! Just incredibly out of place with the old-timey scene! I pointed it out to CMs, but 4 days later it was still there!!! Someone reported that it was gone a couple weeks later, but it never should have been left there at all. Very very bad show!!!
